Mercy - Duffy

Mercy

Deluxe EP
soul female vocalists pop duffy british


Duffy told the Daily Mail that this retro-soul song, "is about the way my heart rate increases whenever I leave Wales to go to London." (Source Mercy Songfacts). In Feb 2008 'Mercy' stormed to the top spot of the UK charts on download sales alone. This isn't the first taste of success for Welsh songstress Duffy, in 2003 she was runner up in Wawffactor (the Welsh alternative to Pop Idol) and in 2004 she was guest vocalist on electro duo Mint Royale's 3rd album.


’60s-sounding Welsh blues singer Aimee Anne Duffy - known professionally as Duffy - released her debut single Rockferry in December 2007. After relocating to London in 2006, she came to the attention of Rough Trade. She is often compared to late ’60s soul diva Dusty Springfield and has experienced significant mainstream success with the single Mercy reaching #1 in the United Kingdom. The debut album, Rockferry, was released in March 2008, and also made #1 on the UK album chart. Show more ...

But I gotta stay true
My morals got me on my knees
